Roughly 2,200 characters appear throughout its world but Goofy is missing Much to the elation of fans, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game director Masahiro Sakurai announced on Tuesday that Sora, from Disney’s Kingdom Hearts series, will be the last character to join a roster of 82 fighters.
While Sora’s friends, Riku and Kairi, are included in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s depiction of the window, Goofy and Donald Duck are missing.
Mickey and other mainstay characters and songs from Kingdom Hearts were notably missing from Tuesday’s announcements.
These missing songs and characters ultimately serve as a reminder; even a seemingly expansive Nintendo franchise like Super Smash Bros. — which has incorporated characters from across vastly diverse franchises and games, from Minecraft to Sonic the Hedgehog — has its limits.
